According to an E!online story anyway!
"A special, Bear's Everest, is scheduled to premiere on Discovery Nov. 9, and then season three will roll out in three two-hour installments starting Nov. 16."
The article also goes into all the knocks against Man vs Wild and its host/star Bear Grylls.
Discovery Channel admitted that not everything on the show was real.
"Responding to the report of Man vs. Wild's deception, Discovery admitted in a statement that "some episodes were not natural to the environment and that for health and safety concerns the crew and host received some survival assistance while in the field."
Meaning, according to show consultant Mark Weinert, that Grylls sometimes crashed in motels—replete with Internet access and hot tubs— when he was supposedly sleeping outdoors and that the crew sometimes helped him fashion rafts and other modes of transportation that he's shown to be crafting or discovering (those horses weren't really wild…) alone."
